A Change in the Title

On Friday I should I have posted a blog entry entitled “Eleven Years Ago Today…”

Instead, today I title this “Eleven Years Ago This Past Friday, I Married Troy!!”

Yes – you heard me right – Troy and I have been married 11 years as of October 19, 2007. We didn’t know each other long when we married (only 7 months) but we knew we were gonna make it!!

This past year has been a very exciting, trying and wonderful year. Troy has proven his love this year to me like no other. He has listened to me through every emotion this adoption has brought on, (those of you out there in the same shoes – you KNOW what I mean!!), he has been an amazing help to my parents (and me) in helping them move to a smaller place, closer to us, as my dad is not well, he mowed their grass every other weekend this past summer and moved stuff galore, and as you know by my last post he was a trooper for me when I was in the hospital. I am lucky to have him.

In adoption news, I finally called my local rep on Friday and we had a very nice conversation about the goings on with our agency. We still have a wait in front of us, but good things come to those who wait, right? I just know you are reading this giving me back a resounding “RIGHT”!! I also talked with our coordinator in the St. Louis office and we had a good conversation as well. We feel at this point that we are in the best position we can be in right now.

Here’s to anniversaries and adoption news!! (Hopefully more adoption news before the next anniversary!!)

Finally, thanks for all the well wishes left for me. I am finally feeling on the mend and hope to head back to work this week for a couple of half days to see if I can make the drive and hang out at work for a few hours without being exhausted, and then back to the grind next week.

Happy Anniversary! Eleven years is wonderful! I hope you are continuing to gain strength and feel better!

I'm glad you had a positive conversation with your coordinator. Hopefully things will keep moving well in your region and you all will hear something soon!

Wow! 11 years of marriage, how wonderful! Take it slow with the recovery; don't push yourself.

Here's to another beautiful year of marriage with Troy and (hopefully soon) your little one.
Congratulations and Happy Anniversary.

Happy 11 years!! Norman and I forgot ours this year. We were in Vlad and his aunt had to remind us. Ha. I'm glad you are feeling much better.


Becky and Keith said...

Happy, Happy Anniversary! :-) Maybe you can celebrate a bit later when you're feeling better. I agree with Amy - DON'T push yourself, young lady! :-)

Dede said...

Happy Anniversary! We celebrated our 11th this past August after just 6 months of dating...I know what you mean by just knowing you're going to make it!

I'm glad to hear that you are getting positive news from your agency and that you are feeling better!

Just think on year #12 you'll be writing with a new love on your side. Congrats on the 11 years and don't rush yourself into work too soon!

Allison said...

Sorry I'm a bit late, but I hope you had a wonderful anniversary!
Glad to hear you're feeling better too.

Congrats on the 11 years, but I think we got you beat on how many months we knew each other before we got married. We dated only 2 1/2 months before we eloped!
